495 Illegal Immigrants Released – overcrowding at detention centres in Tarifa, Algeciras, and Cadiz lead to their release
495 Illegal Immigrants Released
495 people who entered Spain illegally on boats and rafts from Africa have been released from detention centres in Tarifa, Algeciras, and Cadiz. They have all arrived here within the last week. When people are caught entering Spain illegally they are normally taken to internment centres until they can be processed.
Judge Belen Barranco recently visited the centre at Tarifa and described the conditions as “overcrowded” and requiring “immediate correction”. She has urged facility managers to ensure that a maximum of three per room are accommodated with a shower and flushing toilet in each room.
Criminal Law professor Jose Miguel Sanchez has said the internment process is pointless. He went on to explain that “most of those who are sent to the centre will never actually be deported anyway and will go free after their maximum 60-day stay in the centre”.
